“Bewitched by bread”

Appetite Affair

Adore apples
Bewitched by bread
Charmed by chocolate
Delight in doughnuts
Esteem eggs
Fall for fajitas
Go for grapefruit
Hold hamburger in high regard
Idolize ice-cream
Just crave jam
Kiss kasha goodbye
Love lava cakes
Mad for muffins
Nibble noodles
Over head and ears in love with olives
Passionate about peanut butter
Quest for quesadillas
Relish raspberries
Sweet on salsa
True to tomatoes
Unfaithful to upside-down cake
Venerate vegetables
Welcome waffles
X a meal? Never!
Yearn for yogurt
Zealous for zucchini

poetry+friday+button+-+fulllThis is pure silliness. I wrote it for the prompt of “love” during the 2010 November poem-a-day challenge.

This poem is submitted to Poetry Friday, hosted today by the very Etsy, I mean artsy Robyn Hood Black.

      Why thank you, Jama! I just saw your name and thought, oh man, I could butter up Jama even more by changing the “peaches” in P to “peanut butter.” I’m doing it–just in honour of you, you fabulous foodie.

    I was going to thank you for including peanut butter, but Jama beat me to it! Thanks for sharing, Violet.

      Thanks Matt. And how could I leave out peanut butter after all the ways Jama has been tempting and indulging us through November! My bad for even thinking it!!

    Violet, I’m happy you included muffins and olives! What fun.

      Thanks Joyce. Wouldn’t want to leave out something as staple as muffins or olives, would we?

    I appreciate the quest for quesadillas although my wife would suggest queso instead. This is wildly creative and a great poem to share with students.

    Tasty fun, Violet! “Fall for fajitas” and “Love lava cakes” might be my favorite lines… Yum.
    (And thanks for the “artsy” shout-out!) :0)

      Good! Does our love affair with food ever end? It’s a wonder we’re not all as big as houses!!

      And all the best on your artsy ventures. I love what you’re doing!

    Truly a mouth-watering poem.. Love Lava Cakes as well! We just had a Molten Chocolate Cake last night from Chili’s. Truly an indulgence.

      Ooh! ‘Molten Chocolate Cake’ sounds good!

    Just great, Violet. I have written a couple of alphabet poems where each word follows the alphabet. It’s fun, but not so easy. I always like the way you choose such good words. Amy L-V said today she loved shopping at the word store. I would say you found a very nice shop!

      Thanks Linda! What a great description of Amy’s – “word store.” Could there be a poem there?

    Great job, Violet! Even the X was so well done! Yum šŸ™‚

      Thank you Iza! Yes, that X caused me some head-scratching. I suppose it could also signify a kiss, which would have been quite suitable for a love poem.

    Silly but delicious! This would make a wonderful poetry prompt for my students…thanks for sharing, Violet.

      Tara, use it as a prompt! It would be fun to see what your students would come up with. Let us know!!
